Various hollow spheres with complex structures, such as pillared hollow spheres (see Figure) and double-shelled hollow spheres, have been prepared by using hollow latex cages as templates. This new template synthesis provides a simple approach for easily controlling the morphology of hollow spheres by altering the loading sequence of the reagents and their concentration.
